Advanced Management Skills

The step up from lower levels of management to senior management can seem daunting. Senior managers have to take a helicopter view of their business, sometimes dealing with strategic, big-picture issues, sometimes with more operational issues. This requires a different mindset and skills. In this collection, we will look at what senior management means in different organisations, how senior managers have to change their focus and adapt to their environment, and what skills are needed to achieve success.
  • Focus on adapting and developing your leadership approach
  • Practise and enhance your coaching skills
  • Create a personal action plan to support you on your journey
  • Training options for individual learners, groups/teams & organisation-wide
